The Warrandyte Festival - Friday 20 to Sunday 22 March 2015

The Warrandyte Festival

The much-loved Warrandyte Festival is a celebration of community, participation and friendship. Held on the banks of the Yarra in March each year, the Festival is an opportunity for local people, families, schools, community groups and services to come together and enjoy everything that Warrandyte offers.

The 2015 Festival will be held from 20 – 22 March 2015.

On the banks of the Yarra, festival-goers enjoy the duck race, billy cart derby, great live music and fabulous festival fare. The kids are entertained all weekend while adults enjoy the swinging sounds of vibrant bands and catching up with friends.


The theme for 2015 is ‘Smart Arts’.

Historically, Warrandyte is well known for the artists who drew inspiration from the bush and the river, the community and the wildlife.

From potters to impressionists, many talented contemporary artists continue to call Warrandyte home.
